This whitish fine powder PA 2200 on the basis of polyamide 12 serves with its very well-balanced property profile a wide variety of applications. Laser-sintered parts made from PA 2200 possess excellent material properties:
high strength and stiffness
excellent long-term constant behaviour
high selectivity and detail resolution
various finishing possibilities (e.g. metallisation, stove enamelling, vibratory grinding, tub colouring, bonding, powder coating, flocking)
bio compatible according to EN ISO 10993-1 and USP/level VI/121 °C
approved for food contact in compliance with the EU Plastics Directive 2002/72/EC (exception: high alcoholic foodstuff)
Typical applications of the material are fully functional plastic parts of highest quality. Due to the excellent mechanical properties the material is often used to substitute typical injection moulding plastics. The biocompatibility allows its use e.g. for prostheses, the high abrasion resistance allows e.g. the realisation of movable part connections.
120 μm layer thickness:
The advantage of the Balance parameter set is equilibrium. The layer thickness of 120 μm offers a perfect balance between production costs, mechanical properties, surface quality and accuracy. It is therefore suitable for parts with varying geometries, dimensions and requirements.
